Logo™ and her friend Susie have been doing some really cool flash fictions. I'm going to follow suit because my blog a) was meant to be used as a writing warm-up, b) has lately been done in lieu of writing (ack!) and c) it just looks like a lot of fun! I'm going with the Drabble (100 words.)
Today I totally forgot about jumproping and kicking the bag, so I'll have to do it tomorrow. One of the guys at sparring is starting to really give me a run for my money and I have to work on something to counter that, LOL! I also have the loan of an industrial carpet cleaner. Remember I have somewhere between 4 and 100 children, so this is a Godsend to say the least. Carpet, if you think about it, is like a sweater that you nail to the floor and never wash. Ick. I don't dare do before and afters lest some health organisation come and take away my children, LOL! (dare I even jest about such a thing?) But I'm hoping it'll make a nice difference. If I had my way, I'd rip up the carpet and paint the subfloor until we could afford wood flooring, but I don't have my way. Wah.
I'm still in catalog-drooling phase and Asia for Kids is another that I always love to get. Plenty to drool over in there! Hey - I just realised I don't spell it "catalogue" anymore! Soon doughnuts will be donuts. Actually, I think they already are. . .
Such haunting music. It evoked the memory of things before her time – things she couldn't possibly remember. And yet. . .
The stones stood tall around her, seeming to flicker in the shadows cast by the leaping flames. Music - first a few plucked notes, haunting, eerie, then changing subtly, slowly, becoming stronger, deeper, thrumming powerfully, joined by the heartbeat of irrefusable drums. She looked across the fire and into his eyes – soul-kindred, heart-mate, partner of a thousand lives.
Back in the present she raised her eyes to the lute player's, heart pounding wildly, half-fearing to hope. And she smiled.
